So pleased to be able to feature the work of Abi McGinnis for the first time today, as a Painterly Prose artist! She has such a pretty, elegant style that we knew would work perfectly with our watercolor artwork. Enjoy!
For our Painterly Prose post today, we have an example from Dionne Christiansen (@nibandpixel). This bold, flowing style works great for a watercolor fill effect, and just a simple wash to finish it off. It would be a great choice for one of our watercolor wedding invitations!
For our Painterly Prose calligraphy feature this morning, we have the talented Elizabeth Hardin again! This quote from Matisse hardly needs any further explanation, only some big blooms to go with it!
We owe a special Thank You to Meant to Be Calligraphy and Roald Dahl for bringing us this happy thought for Friday morning. Not much else needs to be said here, just keep smiling!
So glad to feature the beautiful work of Laura Hooper again today, enjoy!
It’s always a pleasure to feature the work of @designsgirl, one of our favorite calligraphers! Her beautiful style has adorned so many of our pieces. An airy watercolor landscape seemed like a good fit for this flowing, open style.
So excited to have Arney Walker back on the blog today! An inspirational thought about art and life for you, from Stella Adler. Happy Friday!
The talented Michele of Meant to Be Calligraphy (@meanttobedc) has sent us a series of quotes she lettered for Danielle of Magnolia Bluebird, for her wedding. They are all gorgeous, and “love” themed. This short, simple ee cummings line seemed perfect for one of our watercolor woodland landscapes.
We’ve featured @mhpknsbyhand a couple of times before and her gorgeous script never fails to amaze us. This morning we have a short and sweet Bible verse to feature, with some watercolor botanicals. Such beautiful, flowing lettering!
Another lovely, fun example from Jennifer Mauricio! Such a sweet quote by Audrey Hepburn, perfect for bright watercolor florals and patterns. We’ve had such dreary weather here, and these colors sure help to brighten things up.
Any day that we get to feature designsgirl is a good day! This morning for Painterly Prose, a little reminder from CS Lewis that each day is new, and full of opportunity.
We have a new artist to feature today for Painterly Prose, the talented Moya Minns of MMInk! Our lively and cheerful watercolor fruits just seemed perfect for Mahatma Gandhi’s reminder to spread love and life wherever you go.
